I must remember I'm not super woman anymore. nono
 
I thought I'd do a little restoration work today on my poor mailbox. I thought "it's cool enough there's a strong breeze blowing from a storm moving by (no rain yet). The sun's going down and it won't take but 30 minutes to do what I plan to do".
 
I took a small hammer and beat out a small dent made by a vandal years ago. Not too hard... I can do this.
I grabbed the drill with the grit paper attached and started grinding at the rust spots. A little harder...sweat is beginning to drip.
Next I got a scraper to take off the old decal numbers. I'm sweating bullets now, hands are trembling some... nono
After unsuccessfully removing all but 10% of the decals I was ready to collapse! shocked
 
I stagger into the house with every muscle trembling and soaking wet with sweat. I look at the clock I had been out there for 20 minutes! shakehead
It took a long slighty cool (don't want to set off the Raynauds) shower to feel somewhat normal again. It's been over 45 minutes since I came in and I'm still trembling some.
I did not realized how much I've changed since Feburary. smhair
What will the new school year bring me? confused

I'm still suffering from the after effects of the sun yesterday. I'm feverish, trembling some, and my head hurts. :(
I've got to rest...
